OK, I'm heading to Rochester permanently the first week in Feb. I WAS really excited even knowing about the bad winters. But now, people are making all kinds of comments about it raining all the time in the summer, etc.

Is it really THAT bad?

I know the winters are long and bad but I thought the late spring, summer and fall was supposed to be nice.

I'm from PA so it's not like I'm moving from the South or AZ.

For those that detest Rochester don't bother answering please as I'd like unbiased answers

Thanks!

rain all summer? Balogna! Rochester receives between 65-70% of available sunshine during summer. That's more than Raleigh, NC and Atlanta. People can understandably complain about our winters here because there is no doubt they are pretty extreme when it comes to snowfall....but our summer weather here is just about as perfect as you can get! Trust me...MOST days from late may to mid september....the sun is out and the temps are very pleasant. We do get rain, which is good because it keeps everything lush and green and alive....but there are definitely more sunny days than rainy ones. It would definitely be a "Rochester Hater" who told you it rains all summer. People like that are just miserable people with miserable lives who have to blame their misery on someone, something, or somewhere.

Thanks so much! I love the change in seasons. It's one of the things I like best about PA. NY will offer much nicer summers though than I have here - not as hot or humid

I AM excited again! I found a great job, a beautiful country house to rent and a place right across the driveway to keep my horse. I amblessed and I'll soon be a proud NY'er!

Is that a Tennessee walker that you have? You're brining him/her with you, or you're getting one in Rochester/Victor?
